New event: Booksale for Emitos Girls Humanist Football Club

From: Alice F.
Sent on: Sunday, October 18, 2009 11:47 PM
A new event has been added to the Central London Humanist Group calendar: http://www.meetup.com/Central-London-Humanists/calendar/11655862/


The CLHG is proud to host this charitable booksale in aid of Emitos Girls Humanist Football Club in Uganda. This fantastic project, supported by Women and the Free World Organisation (WOFEWO), aims to empower and educate girls aged 12-20 years through football.

Further information about the club can be found here (where, coincidentally, you can also make an online donation):

www.charitygiving.co.uk/emitos

Absolutely all profits from this booksale will go to Emitos FC


The booksale is taking place in the Human Rights Action Centre which Amnesty International have very kindly donated to us for the evening. The booksale will start from 4pm and end at 9pm.


Please feel free to pop by for ten minutes, two hours or the whole evening.


There will be fine wines, tea, coffee, cakes and even (light) music so I encourage members to treat the evening as a social as much a booksale.





------------------------------------ Book donations ------------------------------------

A while ago I sent a message asking members if they would be willing to donate books to the sale. The initial poll suggested that 16 of you would donate a wonderful 59 books!

If you?re unable to bring books on the day, or simply would prefer to hand them over early, I will be collecting donations at every CLHG upcoming event from now until the booksale.

I would also ask members to circulate this email to friends, family and colleagues asking for donations. If you know an author who might donate a signed copy of their book, or publishers who might donate a selection of their publications, please do contact me.

Some of the books donated so far...

------------------------------------ Signed books ------------------------------------

Several authors have very kindly donated signed copies of their books which will be available to buy on the day. Since the books will be brand new and signed by the author, we?ll be selling these ones at RRP price (with any further donations thereafter of course appreciated)
